November is Rotary Foundation Month and we hope you’ve made plans in your club to promote the good work of the Foundation and to implement your fundraising plan to support that good work.   We just celebrated World Polio Day. Our challenge is before us. Let’s keep our “Countdown To History” going and end polio now. Thank you for your gifts to the PolioPlus Fund. It remains the Foundation’s top priority!

Thank you also for your gifts to the Annual Fund of the Foundation.  They promote peace, provide clean water, save mothers and children, support education, grow local economies, and fight disease.   These gifts are transformed into service projects that change lives close to home and around the world.
Here’s a link to the contribution form you can use, or your Club Foundation Chair can use, to designate your gift:  Form 123-EN.  You can give to both PolioPlus and the Annual Fund.  Be sure your designations are clearly marked on the contribution form, or make sure your Club Foundation Chair, or whoever is sending the gifts to the Foundation, clearly understands and delineates the designations you prefer.  

If you make your gift online, you may also designate your gift.   

Remember also that we have tools that are tested and proven to help you raise funds in your club.  Our District Foundation team is ready to help you! Just let me know and we’ll get you the tools you need.  

While we know from experience that the most successful fundraising clubs promote the Foundation every month, we encourage you to have fun with the Foundation in November!  

Yours in Rotary,
Don Meyer
District Foundation Chair
